The author of Pixel Dungeon is Russian, so the game contains lots of in-game typos. Also, in ex-Soviet schools, British English is taught; and with the fall of USSR, plenty of American materials arrived, so he sometimes confuses dialects.

Typos are referenced in the wiki with the {{Sic}} template, currently used in those articles.
